Self Charging Electric Vehicles Technologies

Self Charging Electric Vehicles Technologies

Based on the information provided in the document and some general knowledge about these technologies, I'll create a table estimating the potential kW output for each power source mentioned in the SCEV system, as well as the additional wheel rotation energy capture methods we discussed.

Power SourceEstimated kW Output
Solar panels0.2 - 1 kW
Regenerative braking10 - 60 kW (during braking events)
Regenerative shock absorbers0.1 - 1.5 kW
Small internal hydrogen engine50 - 100 kW
In-wheel motors (generating mode)1 - 5 kW per wheel
Electromagnetic induction from wheels0.1 - 0.5 kW per wheel
Piezoelectric materials in wheels/tires0.01 - 0.1 kW per wheel
Enhanced regenerative braking15 - 80 kW (during various driving conditions)
Kinetic energy recovery system (KERS)60 - 80 kW (during energy recovery)

Please note:

  1. These are rough estimates and actual outputs can vary significantly based on specific implementations, conditions, and technological advancements.

  2. Some of these power sources (like regenerative braking and KERS) provide intermittent power during specific events rather than continuous output.

  3. The small internal hydrogen engine output is an estimate, as the document doesn't provide specific figures for this component.

  4. The wheel rotation energy capture methods (in-wheel motors, electromagnetic induction, piezoelectric materials) are estimates based on potential implementations, as they weren't explicitly mentioned in the original document.

  5. The total power available at any given time would depend on driving conditions, vehicle design, and which systems are actively generating electricity at that moment.
